On Wednesday afternoon, 5P got practical in Science when investigating air resistance.
The challenge: They were asked by a parachuting company to trial different materials to find out which one would be best to use for their new parachute.
The investigation: In pairs they had to make their own parachute out of various different materials and test which created the safest and slowest landing.
The result: They found that small plastic bags were best because they filled up with air which caused them to slow down.
Galileo Galileo would be impressed!
This week Year 5 have made parachutes to test air resistance.
This half term Year 5 are looking at different forces. This week they have investigated water resistance.
5P were thrilled to welcome family into their classroom on the morning of Thursday 28th March.
The morning kicked off with the class bravely presenting information and facts about Georgprahy that they had learnt during lessons.
The class then led a range of activities for their guests, which included locating continents in Atlas’s, and identifying countries on a map.
Finally, 5P quizzed their guests on all things Geography to see what they had learnt and check who was paying attention!
The class would like to thank everyone who came and took part in their lesson, they hope you enjoyed it.

During Anti-bullying Week we worked on knowing what steps to take if you or someone you know is being bullied. We talked about respect and how we can show this to our friends by the things we say and the way in which we behave.
This half term the English work in Year 5 is all based around the book The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. Why not put your children to the test! Ask them if they can tell you who is the first character that Lucy meets when she enters Narnia.
Year 5 have been working really hard writing their own adventure stories based on the book Cliff Hanger by Jacqueline Wilson.
